The Franklin County Area United Way raised $1,177,902 in funding for agencies and programs in the county during its 2016 campaign, with companies like Fidelity Communications leading the way.
Last summer, Fidelity Communications was named a pilot company for its 2016 fundraising campaign by the county United Way’s board of directors. Five area employers were chosen for the honor based on their family-oriented values.
As part of the campaign, Fidelity launched an effort to raise of minimum of $500 in employee contributions and match that amount with a corporate donation. But employees came through with $2,358 in donations. A $500 employer match brought the grand total to $2,858. The company received a certificate of appreciation for its efforts.
“I have always known our team to be caring and generous and this just goes to show how much we can do when we work together,” said Michelle Williamson, Fidelity Benefits Manager. “Fidelity Communications continues to be a leader in helping make lasting change in our community by partnering with Franklin County United Way.”
